(Bay makes Megan Fox wear a special animatronic shirt that allows more cleavage at the press of a button.)
This story sounds bogus, but we’ll get to that later. First, the fun part. Reports Jason Solomons of the Guardian:
Talking to Megan Fox who was in town for the Transformers 2 premiere, I found her more forthright and intelligent than her performance in the mega-hit would suggest [funny how staring at a girl’s tits can so raise your perception of her intelligence -Ed.]. The role demands that she drapes [sic] herself over motorbikes and runs around in a vest. How did she get the part which has made her what lads’ mags call the “hottest girl on the planet?” She told me she went to director Michael Bay’s house to audition and he made her wash his Ferrari while he filmed her. She said she didn’t know what had happened to that footage. When I put it to Bay himself, he looked suitably abashed. “Er, I don’t know where it is either.”
I sat through all eight mintues of Solomon’s interview with Michael Bay (also in video) to see him ask about the Megan Fox story, and it never came up (though Michael Bay does reveal “I was a magician as a child.”). Secondly, why would she have to “audition” for a sequel? The only grain of truth I can find in this is that it’s well known in Hollywood circles that Michael Bay does use the phrase “wash my Ferrari” as a euphemism for oral sex (which he prefers to receive in a freshly-washed Ferrari).
